Easy-Layout Editor won't recognize my PIXMA TR8620a printer


In November I installed a new PIXMA TR8620a printer into our home's WIFI network, on which 2 of us are using Windows 10 PCs. I downloaded several Canon apps to use with the printer, including Easy-Layout Editor. But when I open the latter package and choose one of its modules, I immediately get this error message: "Cannot find an available printer." This is despite this printer working just fine in all other apps with which we've tried it; the new printer also appears as normal among the installed devices when we open the Windows Settings app. What might be the solution?

5. In the upper left corner, click on Control Panel (or the Back button).

6. In Control Panel, click on Uninstall a program (or Programs and features, depending on your view).

7. Click once on "Canon TR8600 series MP Drivers" and then click Uninstall at the top.
